    And teach your sons to be responsible, respectable men who don’t take advantage of women. The boys here are displaying disgusting behaviour and blaming it all on the girls is not going to make it stop.

    @lottopol – You might want to read the whole letter. That line is taken out of context. He was actually referring to atheists in that whole paragraph and their line of thought.

    *edit
    @Sleazy – Nevermind. I see you answered the question. Didn’t think you would. lol

    When did we get an edit function? Yah!

    @Sleazy. I assume by the 3 types of evidence for ancient works, you mean:
    1. Completeness
    2. Consistency
    3. Physical/Archaeological

    I don’t reject [God] outright. I find the idea of God rather comforting, but cannot bring myself to believe in something I have to evidence for.

    @HappyAtheist – Technically, he was a “Christian Deist.”

    Christian Deist – “Christian deism, in the philosophy of religion, is a standpoint that branches from Christianity. It refers to a deist who believes in the moral teachings—but not divinity—of Jesus.”

    No he wasn’t. He publicly used Christianity to further his cause, but he privately had great disdain for Christianity. Read Mein Kompf or any history book on the matter. Heck, read Wikipedia for that matter, as it also discusses it and cites actual sources.

    Especially because the pregnancy almost killed my mother-n-law too. I still see cases like that as ending the suffering, instead of needlessly prolonging it. But I also know that seeing the baby for that short time helped her in the end.
    Seeing my wife also lose our first child, and then having two of our own, pushed me harder in the prolife direction.
    Sometimes I wish I didn’t think about these things so much. My mind can’t stay quiet and is always bouncing through these kinds of things. I need the answers to the life, universe and everything. (I know. It’s 42.)

    It’s the support sub-reddit, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it is true.
    I don’t believe, but otherwise I agree with you. I agree that adoption probably would have been a better option. She would have seen her baby and given it the life she seems to want it to have. Though, from the wording, I suspect she was worried that if she saw it, she wouldn’t be able to give it away. Which may have actually made her life better, as she would have strived to better herself for her child.
    I used to be very prochoice. but as time has gone on, my perspective has shifted. It started in university, with my biology 101 course. It was all stuff I know, but the class was a requirement. But the class on the stages of early life came at a time when the campuses prolife and prochoice groups were in a pretty heated argument through the campus paper and through posters. As I took notes, it dawned on me in a “why have I know seen this before” moment. Science is very clear when life begins. I’m looking at the stages right here on the screen and in my textbook. Stages I saw in High School. So I began really mulling it over. If we can charge a man for beating his wife and killing the developing child inside her, than society clearly knows it’s a life. Overtime, I thought about it more, and my position has shifted. I’m still not sure how to deal with cases, like my mother-in-law, where she had to carry a anencephilic child to term, a child that died shortly after it was born. (contintued)

    It is true that a lack of Folic Acid in the diet increases the chances, but they recently discovered a link with genetic ciliopathy.

    Again, C14 dating is not the only form of radiometric dating. This study DIDN’T use it. They used Uranium-Thorium Dating.

  • [2] October 9, 2014 at 3:46pm

    Ditto.

    My result:
    Like Philip, you are an inquisitive and analytical person. You are open to exploring new ideas and testing them with the tools of logic and reason. You tackle the “big questions” about life and the universe, and others often look to you for insight.

    However, also like Philip, your objective and abstract tendencies may cause you to overlook the things in life that can’t be explained with logic. You may have trouble believing that miracles are really possible. Or you may not always realize the importance and power of the loving relationships right in front of you. You may be reluctant to discuss your personal feelings, and this may prevent you from openly bringing others to Christ.

    Your role as a disciple of Christ is that of an open-minded and nonjudgmental philosopher. You inspire debate and thought-provoking dialogue that challenges others to “Come and see” what Jesus is all about.

    C14 dating is not the only form of radiometric dating. C14 has a limited time frame due to the halflife of the Carbon-14 isotope.
    In this case, they used Uranium-Thorium dating.

    My heart goes out to the family. Anencephely is a horrible defect, and have a profound effect on a family. My wife had a younger brother that died of a severe case of it, and died within a few days. His skull cap and his spine failed to close, exposing both his brain and spinal cord. My mother also had a brother that died of it, he died within hours.
    With it on both sides of the family, my wife and I worried about it with our children.

    Not only that, but if they had pulled the trigger, from where the cops were standing the angle of trajectory of the bullets would have taken out the driver and the kids too.

    @Kenny Dee – That would be because they align themselves with the Nation of Islam, which is purely an “American” creation (strictly speaking an African American creation, as it’s tenets are for Black Americans alone) which the mainstream Islamic sects shun and is more Islamic in name only.

    But we could be talking about the animal named ass. You can’t filter an animals name.

    /sarcasm

    It is amazing though, when the cops stand accused how long it takes for those videos to come out. The dash-cam either makes or breaks cases like these.
